Project: Application of artificial substrates for biological monitoring of large rivers and canals in Flanders and The Netherlands.

01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99

The aims of the proposed study are : 1) to develop standardized procedures for sampling the benthic macro-invertebrates of large rivers and canals by means of artificial substrates 2) to compare different artificial substrates, in particular a Belgian and a Dutch artificial substrate and select those substrate(s) which are most suitable for biological monitoring purposes 3) to compare the biological communities of artificial and natural substrates.
